Daily Gadget: Leica M7 Hermes Limited Edition Camera

leica_m7_hermes

The economy is getting better: wildly expensive at $14,250US, and the economy is a sinking ship: probably wildly stealable. The Hermes treatment is given to the Leica M7. Specs are the same as the existing version – film based, quick locking variable aperture priority, amazing lens options. Calfskin leather in either orange or etoupe (if they’re going to say  “orange”, why not just say “brown”…) wrapped over a silver chrome body. Limited to 100 cameras per color. The kit drops in December 2009 in a linen and silk box, includes a matching leather strap, the Leica SUMMILUX-M 35 mm f/1.4 ASPH wide-angle lens, a matching classic lens flare hood, and the LEICAVIT M rapid film winder.

This thing’s all over the internet- freshnessmag, hypebeast. and engadget.

Worship with the Gaming Masses

Sit back and watch the latest in gaming news, Inside Gaming, hosted by Dead Pixel. It’s got a good review of Assassin’s Creed 2 – the tidbits about controlling yourself as a baby just after being born and conversations with your mom about vaginas in the presence of Leonardo da Vinci sound kinda crazy. Then there’s Left 4 Dead 2, hot on the trails of the first gory version, so it suffers a bit for being more of the same but sounds like it manages to introduce some new enemies, new weapons, and new locations.

Alex Schweder ‘performance architecture’

Alex-Schweder

Installation artist Alex Schweder created spit skin in 2006.

“this installation of licked together biodegradable packing peanuts contorts, deforms, and melts when it contacts water.  Located in a subterranean bathroom at the American Academy in Rome, this saliva stuck skin served as a map of moisture exchange between  leaky walls and the leaky bodies that occupied them.  The shriveling and shrinking architectural performance for the camera questions the role of the recording and the object in our subjective perception of space.

Amazing.

how do you read?

kindle

How do you read content these days? I am obsessed with the Kindle for iphone, but I think the actually kindle looks a little pretentious. Besides the fact, do you really need to carry around another gadget? Check out this article from the Times, “Library in a Pocket” which asks the question is it small enough.

Check out Distill‘s mag app and check out GQ‘s December issue.
